Example text

My own education had stopped in middle school, when I had to start taking care of the twins. Njogu and Mugo agreed, and the district commissioner released the funds. But as soon as they received the money, my brothers started to build a house only for themselves. I threatened to report them to the district commissioner, and a really big fight broke out. Up to this point, I had always lost fights with my brothers; but by this time I was pretty big, and I started winning. This made them very angry, and they tied me up, dragged me to my father’s grave, put a rope around my neck, and beat me with rocks and choked me until I was unconscious.

Then another pulled me up and forced me to walk. They shut me in the van and began to drive. My hands were numb with cold. As the van sped through the night, I couldn’t stop worrying about what would happen to Njoka and Lucy if Moi’s officers killed me. When the van stopped, the men dragged me out and led me through a building. When they took off the blindfold, the light blinded me. They made me remove my muddy clothing and threw me into the cold water torture chamber. For days, I knew nothing but darkness, cold, fear, hunger, thirst, and the belief that I had already died.

I tensed, waiting for his shot. I had seen movies of people being executed and dying before they hit the ground. I hoped that it would be painless. Someone grabbed me by the front of my collar and said, “Before I kill you, I need to know who told you to start this tea foolishness. We want to know names. ” It was hard for me to speak, because his knuckles were cutting off my windpipe, but I told him that I had started the boycott and that no one had put me up to it. “We know you didn’t start this by yourself,” he scoffed.
